International Trade: Leaving the EU: Women’s Rights (17 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: I very much welcome that answer because a well-designed trade policy can positively transform women’s social and economic rights in developing countries.

Member for Pontypridd (Owen Smith) for introducing this debate and for setting out the facts and the science so comprehensively.

Housing and Access to Legal Aid — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (16 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: It is good to see you in the Chair, Mrs Main. I congratulate the hon. Member for Brentford and Isleworth (Ruth Cadbury) on securing this debate. It is one in a series of debates we have had in Westminster Hall on access to justice and legal aid more generally. That is essential, as we keep pressure on the Government during their internal review of the operation of LASPO. From the outset, the...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: I echo the criticisms of the outrageous immigration exemption in the Bill and am pleased to add my name to amendment 15. Little has been said today about international transfers of personal data by intelligence services, despite the serious concerns raised in Committee. I will therefore speak briefly to new clause 24, which it is all the more important we debate, given the moves by the Trump...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Can the Minister give us a couple of examples to illustrate why these additional powers are necessary, and where the other powers in the Bill—in relation to criminal offences and investigations, for example—would not already suffice to do everything that the Home Office wishes?

Stuart McDonald: Your good wishes, Mr Speaker, and those of other hon. Members have certainly made facing up to middle age that little bit easier today, so thank you very much indeed. I start, as I did in Monday’s debate, by paying tribute to the Windrush generation. They battled against hostility when they arrived, and it is a tragedy that they have to battle against hostility 70 years later. We have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Stuart McDonald: Despite this horrendous heatwave, I am still looking forward to joining 17 colleagues on both sides of the House in trying to complete the marathon on Sunday.
